!This band leaks examples of:
* ADateWithRosiePalms: The song "Magazines" is a bit of this.
* BreakUpSong - Most of ''Your Favorite Weapon''.
** And the entirety of "The Boy Who Blocked His Own Shot."
** "Seventy Times 7" is a particularly spiteful "between friends" version.
* BilingualBonus: Deja Entendu is French for 'already heard'. A joke about how they said they don't want to make the most original music, just good music.
** It's also called this because the entire album is a biting, critical {{Deconstruction}} of rock cliches both past and present.
* CarefulWithThatAxe - "Luca" is a particularly alarming instance.
* CreepyChildrenSinging- "Degausser".
* DarkerAndEdgier - A career-long shift, from the relatively upbeat-sounding relationship songs of ''Your Favorite Weapon'' to the emo-tinged ''Deja Entendu'' to ''The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me'' which was their darkest yet. Then, ''Daisy'' was released and it took this even further, albeit in a different way (''The Devil and God'' was raw, heavy, and angry, while ''Daisy'' is lighter, but even creepier).
* {{Deconstruction}}: On almost all of its tracks, ''Deja Entendu'' deconstructs several different rock music cliches by taking all of the glamour out of them and exposing them for what they really are. This theme of applying real world logic to these age-old cliches permeates the album. A few of the biggest examples are as follows:
** ''Sic Transit Gloria'': A SexAsRiteOfPassage song that portrays the much heralded loss of virginity as anything but glamorous.
** ''I Will Play My Game Beneath The Spin Light'': A look at the less exciting parts of the life of being a rock musician and how it can take its toll on a person.
** ''Okay I Believe You But My Tommy Gun Don't'': A song in which Jesse Lacey basically outlines every single message that rock musicians sing about while both subtly tearing them down and acknowledging that he plays a part in these messages.
** ''The Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows'': An AntiLoveSong about how storybook romances don't exist and that romances that seem like storybook romances can end in boredom and sadness.
** ''Me vs. Maradona vs. Elvis'': a skin-crawling IntercourseWithYou that portrays the act of picking up women that rock music so often glamorizes as empty, creepy and manipulative.
* LongTitle: ''The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me''
** Most of the tracks on Deja Entendu, the longest being ''Good to Know That If I Ever Need Attention All I Have to Do Is Die''.
* MurderBallad - "Luca", which describes a mafia execution and is a ShoutOut to Film/TheGodfather.
* MoodWhiplash: Jesus Christ, Luca.
---> ''Website/YouTube commenter'': "this song put me to sleep - then it woke me up."
* PurpleProse - Jesse's preferred lyrical style. It's a wonder how he can fit some of these lines to music.
* SexAsARiteOfPassage: "Sic Transit Gloria" is a darker take on this.
* StudioChatter: "Soco Amaretto Lime" has "one, two, three, four," in the beginning, albeit very, very faintly.
** Jesse can be heard saying "yeah, that's right" and starting the countdown at the beginning of "Play Crack the Sky." You can also clearly hear him put down his guitar and walk away at the end of the song.
* TakeThat: Your Favorite Weapon is full of shots against TakingBackSunday, Jesse's former band. The most notable instances of this trope come from "Seventy Times 7" and "Mixtape".
